Recently, longitudinal acoustic phonons have been identified as the main source of the intensity damping observed in Rabi rotation measurements of the ground-state exciton of a single InAs/GaAs quantum dot. Here we report experiments of intensity damped Rabi rotations in the case of detuned laser pulses. The results have implications for the coherent optical control of both excitons and spins using detuned laser pulses. (C) 2011 American Institute of Physics
